The Chrono-Functional Resume
The chrono-functional resume can be a powerful and flexible tool for the job seeker
with a solid employment background and special skills he/she wants to emphasize. Like the
chronological resume, it chronologically lists job history and education, while allowing
the job seeker to highlight what makes his/her qualifications especially marketable.
This type of resume is a good choice for recent graduates with some job experience,
career changers, and at-home parents returning to the job market.
